Do a java -version and see if you are using the java in your JAVA_HOME or if you
are using the java that comes with Windows.  

Also there is a test in ant.bat where it checks the OS variable.  You can either
eliminate the test or see if setting OS to Windows_NT makes a difference.

Hope that helps.

Subject: Ant build problem URGENT!!!!!!

Hi All
I have started using Ant1.5 just today. I have installed everything as per
the manual says.
My OS version is Win2k, JDK version is 1.3 etc.
I tried to build a small web application. The Ant utility created the whole
target dir structure, copied
every thing there. After that it started to compile the java files and gave
this error.
D:\testing\navTestSite\build.xml:104: Cannot use classic compiler, as it is
not available A common
solution is to set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to your jdk directory.
Please anybody help me here why this is happening because I have set the
JAVA_HOME property in 
my environment variables properly. It is JAVA_HOME=D:\JDK1.3. 
What is this classic/modern compiler problem?
Thanks a Lot
